Areas of Practice
One on one therapy sessions can help you identify patterns and behaviors that are causing conflict and identify ways to change and grow.
Every person will have to confront trauma at one point in their life, whether it be a big T major trauma or a little t incident. Traumas impact our thinking and behaviors, our mind and our central nervous systems, in very specific ways. Therapy can help you understand how trauma has affected you and give you a road map for healing.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a specific type of treatment that helps people work through traumas and areas where they are stuck in their lives and greatly reduces symptoms associated with these traumas.
Well all experience loss in life and have to figure out how to cope and continue on. There is no formula for navigating the grief process, and everyone grieves differently. Therapy gives you a place to put your heavy feelings, encourages you to allow yourself to feel, and provides support as you figure out how to live without your loved one.
We all have a past that paved the road for who we are today. The way we have responded to those early events and relationships colors how we navigate the world today, both good and bad. Therapy can help you enhance what works and figure out how to change what does not.
First responders and military
First responders and military personnel encounter unique challenges in their work settings,where danger is intrinsic to the job. Historical events such as 9/11 and the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan can test normal coping mechanisms and contribute to PTSD, anxiety, depression, and substance abuse. Therapy can help identify and normalize these reactions and bring relief.
